When I think of a nice night for a bbq, I think of a lot heat and humidity. Some place like in the deep south. While there is nothing stopping people from pulling out their grills when daytime hits 70s, most people seem to wait for the 80s/90s. The deep south is known for their bbq, nowhere else is.

By 'nice snowy' winters I take the guy wants a winter with plenty of snow, sunshine, but not blistering cold temps. Taking all into consideration I'd say the foothills of the appalchians in n. carolina fits him the best.

But then saying you want snowy winters and hot summers rules about none of the country

denver. avg summer highs in the 80s and one of the snowiest cities in the us, although i've heard that while denver gets a lot of snowfall, it melts quickly. but you'd be really close to the rocky mountains where there is snow year round.

I agree with you on ABQ as well as Sante Fe or Taos NM. Sunny warm summers with power snow fall in winters.

No.....I seriously doubt this is what the OP meant. He/she probably meant a true winter, with ice, snow and all the fun things that can come with it. Not 2 hour access to a mountain top in the middle of the South.

Sioux Falls, SD. Average highs below freezing all 3 months of winter, average high of 86 F in July, snow stays on the ground for the most part during winter, and has 4 real seasons. Denver? Salt Lake City? Any places that can easily get to 60 or 70F during winter should not be suggested to the O.P.

The missus and I (both early 30s) are looking for somewhere to move in the States, where we will have lovely winters with lots of snow but also warm and hot summers, with lots of BBQ at night.

I don't mind the occasional thunderstorm, in fact I love them, but we are just fed up with the one season we have here in England, cold and rain.


We have a green card and employment is not that important, as self-employed. The main point really is the weather.

We were originally looking at Flagstaff, AZ, but they have about 200 nights per year below 40F, might be a chilly.

Any ideas? We are considering any of the 50 states.


Thank you so much in advance.

You can add most Northeast cities in there too.
